Not a funny parody.The only part of this movie I actually enjoyed was the one and only lesbian scene. The rest of the movie was "bleh" at best. I wasn't really into any of the actors or actresses at all. It also was a dark and bleak movie, there was no parody in it, so it's misleading.
Decent lesbian scene.
Not a real parody, stereotypical sex scenes.
I never saw the original, so I can't say from my own experience that it follows the real movie, but from what I understand, everyone says it does. It is marketed as a parody, and even states on the box that it is supposed to be funny, but I did not find myself laughing at any part of the movie. It was dark humor at best, if you can even call it humor. It was just dark in general. It was a porn with a serious plot and that's the best I can say about it. The title and descriptions were definitely misleading in that.
This is quite possibly the worse audio in any of the videos within my porn collection. I cranked it up big time to hear voices, and often times had to turn it down between scenes. I was playing with the audio most of the movie, which is a definite mood killer for me. They had very dark music playing for the majority of the movie. The music very much fit the scenes, and the entire DVD for that matter. So I will give it props for that.
The lighting in this DVD was great. It was not mood setting at all, which I think could have been put to good use, but there was never a point in any of the sex scenes that I was unable to see anything. So while the lighting did nothing to enhance the scene or the mood, it didn't harm it either.
Actors and Actresses
Francesca Le, Will Powers, Lexi Belle, Ryan McClane, Breanne Benson, Lyla Storm, and Michael Vegas.
They all have decent chemistry with each other. I feel like Breanne's scenes were polar opposites. Her scene with Michael was totally lacking emotion, and what was there seemed extremely forced to me. I wasn't convinced that she was enjoying herself. I can't really explain what made me feel that way, but I didn't like it. On the other hand, the lesbian scene was fantastic, and I really got into it. I like Michael Vegas, so therefore I did enjoy him at least, but I can't say this one will be on my re-watch list.
One: Breanne Benson & Will Powers
Two: Breanne Benson & Lexi Belle
Three: Lyla Storm & Michael Vegas
Four: Brandy Aniston & Ryan McClane
Five: Francesca Le & Michael Vegas
Six: Breanne Benson & Michael Vegas
The packaging was slightly excessive for this DVD. There was a large box cover, that basically was identical to the regular DVD cover. I'm not sure what the purpose of that was. It is not discreet, because the back shows images from the DVD, still shots of sex scenes and such. The front actually looks kind of cool, and mimics the real movie. Very dark, ooohhh, ahhh. It's nicely packaged, I'll give it that.

This DVD did not have hardly anything extra on it, which I'll admit was disappointing. I've been fairly spoiled by watching behind the scenes videos and other footage. I really enjoy extras, it makes me like a DVD more. This is the first one I've gotten that had nothing other than a gallery or slide show. Very disappointing.
This one will not be one I re-watch. I didn't enjoy it enough for that. There just wasn't enough in it for me to really gain any enjoyment out of it. I'm not sure, maybe I'm just not a fan of Zero Tolerance films. This is the second one I've watched that I totally didn't like. When I'm expecting a parody, I want to see a parody. This DVD was a disappointment all the way around and just didn't deliver what I was expecting and what it was marketed for. The only upside to it was the scene with Breanne Benson and Lexi Belle,and while I like Michael Vegas also, I didn't enjoy the girls he had sex with in this DVD. It just wasn't enough to redeem the DVD as a whole.
Follow-up commentary 6 months after original review
I haven't pulled this DVD out from the dark depths of my porn collection drawer since I first watched it. I don't plan on it either, I actually am thinking of cleaning out all the DVDs I don't watch and giving them to more vanilla friends who might enjoy them more than I did.
